Organize my Pantry with Me!

Organize my Pantry with Me!

Good morning, everyone and welcome back to my channel today's video is gon na, be a cozy home vlog, we're gon na be organizing my pantry, i'm so excited i've actually organized it. In the past on my channel um from scratch, it was like a disaster beforehand. I've done pretty good at keeping it like somewhat under control, but it's just been a while and needs to be. Like put back together and honestly, i just finished watching the home edit on netflix. So if you guys have watched that comment down below i'm so inspired, i just literally need to organize my entire house. They make organization, look so beautiful and anyways. I'M just so ready to start with my pantry and my tea cabinet, because that omar has kind of taken over my tea cabinet with his coffee, so we're gon na kind of get that under control. So basically it is a miracle because i am dressed and ready for the day and it's not even like barely noon um we are slowly but surely feeling like we're kind of getting the parenting thing down. I mean we have our good days and bad dates, still, but um yesterday it was actually one of the best days that i had with elena. I woke up at six a. m and we i fed her or. She woke me up. It's exam, fed her changed her put her back down and i actually stayed awake. Normally. I've been like pranking fudger and then going back to sleep because i've been just so exhausted, and i'm sure, like i'm, not gon na, be able to like stay awake. every single time, but that was literally such a game changer because after i put her down at like six 30ish, i went and i did the dishes. I went and did the laundry i picked up the house. I drank my smoothie in peace. I answered emails and i like got some work done and it was all like before noon and it's just wow but. Slowly but surely we are just figuring things out and just feeling more confident and. It's just such a huge, huge adjustment to being a first-time mom. Another update is that omar went back to work a week ago and he's actually working tonight. So he's sleeping right now and since he has been um back to work on the days that he works at night. My parents have been coming over and helping me with elena, which i'm so grateful for, because the first night that he went back to work they came over, they were so excited. They were prepared to stay and i was like you guys, she's honestly been. Pretty good i mean i'm sure, like y'all, won't be staying. They stayed till two a. m. We were all taking turns walking around the living room, trying to get her to calm down. So i was so grateful that my parents were there and they loved. They love just coming and just being able to like hold her so anyways elena's sleeping right now, omar is sleeping right now, so i'm going to try to go organize my kitchen, my pantry and my tea cabinet with you guys we'll see. If i get interrupted, i'm sure i will i'm sure elena's, i think she's gon na be getting hungry here in the next like hour or so so, let's go get started, ! Okay, so here is the before not terrible, because i did organize this with you guys. I think it was like. Maybe i think it was over a year ago on my channel, but it's just kind of gotten a little bit out of control. I think the one thing that makes it look decent are the storage baskets that i have, and also the little storage containers that have the rice, the pasta, the quinoa, and then i have my cacao powder and flax seed. And then i also like my spices, kind of still look decent as well on my spice holder, but i went ahead and got a few things. I'M going to share to kind of like revamp this, and i'm also going to go ahead and empty everything out. clean it all out and like put everything back in, make it look nice and neat. Okay, i'm gon na do a little amazon haul for y'all, because all this stuff is from amazon. So, okay, starting with the lazy susan this i don't, i don't have any lazy susans in my house, and i think this is gon na be. So nice, to put our oils and vinegars on right now, they're in a basket, which is not really like the most practical thing ever and i think i could get better use out of the basket. So i got a big one of those. I also i'm going to update my spice rack, so i got these like little glass, spice jars, that i can transfer some of my spices into these. I did just go ahead and wash and dry these. The only thing is they don't have that little perforated side or i don't know what it's called so that you can like sprinkle things in. That's the only thing that i may not like about these. So just keep that in mind, but i will link those down below because they're super cute. The next thing that i got is this: oh, it looks like really dirty on camera. Maybe i will wipe this down, but it's a tea storage box and i do have a tea storage box. But it's basically just like a one layer - and i have so many teas - that i needed this like three layer one. So i'm super excited to have more room to store my teas and then oh, these are the labels for the spice jars as well. The last thing i got are these cups, so i don't really have like a big set of teacups. I only have like maybe two if i have cups - and i really just wanted, like a big set that all matched. So it would look good in my pantry and so that, like when guests come over they're like, i can give them all the same cups, um so. My favorite cups that i own are from william sonoma they're. These double barrels, um, glass, mugs, and so i found the same, exact ones on amazon and i got um a set of two sets of four. So i have eight of them now: they're, really nice and big, and they look beautiful with tea or coffee. I almost forgot to share with y'all the state of the teen coffee cabinet beforehand. It's just, so mismatched there's just not enough space. We are gon na get this under control. Okay time to empty all this out, wipe it all down and go through everything in my pantry.

, hello, everyone. So it is actually a couple days later. It took me all weekend to get the pantry organized because things just take a lot longer with this little baby and. She is not letting me put her down, which is why i'm just carrying her around all day. I've been trying to put her down in her crib for her nap for the past hour, and i'm just like okay, we're just gon na. Do everything in my arms today i guess so um. If you guys can't tell i feel like, i have a lisp. I had to go to get my bottom retainer replaced this morning and they put like a different kind on and goes on, like the back of your bottom teeth and yeah, i feel like it's making me have a lisp so. If that continues, i may have to go and get that like replaced again, because i cannot be having like a permanent lisp in my mouth um anyways. Let me show you guys. The final result with the pantry and my tea cabinet, because i think you guys are gon na love it. Okay, here is the after. So it's obviously a, very small, pantry. I don't have like a walk-in pantry or anything in this house. So to maximize the space, i just have to keep it super super organized, so i'll kind of go through what um each little container is and like where everything is located in here all right, i'm going to give you guys a little pantry Tour with a baby in my arms, so wish me luck, we'll see how this goes:, um, starting from at the top. I got these baskets from target last year whenever i organized it in the beginning um. So i will try to link some similar below, but my first first tip when it comes to organizing your pantry, is measure your space beforehand and just make sure that the dimensions of each product and basket and like container that you use, will actually fit in Your space - and i did that and these baskets are just like the, perfect depth and width for these shelves. So it turned out perfect, so the top shelf on the right hand side has all of our paper plates and cups, and silverware. For when guests come over, sometimes if i have more than like just two or three people, i want to use some disposable, silverware and cups, and things like that. So i have that on that side, then on the right. I have our snacks and basically all you can see. is some gluten-free pretzels up there. We really don't have a lot of snacks and omar was getting on to me last night, because i never buy snacks because i don't really eat them. I mean i eat gluten-free pretzels because i'm kind of like on a pretzel kick right now for some reason, but last night he was like looking for snacks and he was like lena. Why do we never have any snacks in the house, but i always ask him like what snacks he wants. Um whenever i place a instacart order - and he never tells me anything so anyways comment below your favorite snack, so i can figure out what to get my husband when i place my next grocery order on this shelf right here i have chocolate, nuts And dates, and so those are kind of my snacks omar, i guess, is not into my kind of snacks, so yeah we have like some mixed nuts in there. I can't point because i'm literally holding my baby so, i hope you guys can see what i'm talking about but - and i also have some justin's peanut butter cups and this one right here. It's kind of like the, healthier version of reese's cups, and then i have some dark chocolate, almond with almonds, and then dates right there, and i would have put the dates in a container like that, because i actually have another container, but They just kind of get sticky and so just leaving them in the disposable containers that they come in. Um was just kind of like just made more sense for me on this shelf. I have my spice rack. I really love this spice rack. It was a kind of an investment, but it's such good quality and you can make it bigger or smaller and kind of like um adjust it to your needs. So i really love the just functionality of it. So i usually use this brand of spices, this simply organic, so i'm honestly probably going to be moving those towards the front again because those are the ones i use more frequently for the spices that i transferred into these containers. They were just kind of spices that didn't match the simply organic ones. So i just wanted to make sure that i had some that kind of all match. maybe one day i will transfer the simply organic ones into these containers as well, because that would look so much better because then they would all match. It really wasn't too hard at all to transfer them, so maybe. Maybe i will the only thing i'll say is that these containers, the new ones? They don't have that little sifter? What is it called? The thing on top that like allows you to like sprinkle spices on is just like, like an, open jar. So i don't know if i will transfer them, because i think i would miss that in my spices what else? Okay, i have peanut butter and honey, and omar is just like that is his breakfast every day is like, toast, peanut butter, honey and eggs. So i had to make sure that was like right in front center for him he's obsessed with peanut butter. He could literally eat a whole jar of peanut butter in like a couple days. That's crazy! This next shelf, i think, makes everything look super, aesthetic, because it's just very uniform. I, if you can hear that dinging, it's my washing machine or my dishwasher. I had to turn it off so that um it wouldn't be buzzing so loud in the background and it's like digging to remind me to turn it back on um anyways. I have these pop. I think they're called the oxo brand they're like pop containers. You basically just like pop the lid open and then you can like pop it closed and it will like seal it tight. So i really love these. I have my gluten-free brown rice, pasta, quinoa, white rice, brown, rice, flax seed powder and then cacao powder and. As you can see, these two get very oh. I just refilled the flax seed powder, but those get very well used because those go in my smoothie every morning. this lazy, susan, you guys is a game. changer! I don't know why. I never had that in the past. It's amazing! Oh my gosh, i have all of my oils, and vinegars on this and it's just, so so nice, but i keep the olive oil in front because i use that the most i have a big thing of oats. I use that all the time for oatmeal and i started putting it in my smoothies and then i have these little containers for cans. These two bottom baskets are just back stock of just any of the other like items that i need to refill. and the spice jars, or in my little canisters so yeah, that's basically everything in my pantry, okay. Next we have our coffee and tea cabinet. It still doesn't look as like perfect, as i would like it because of omar's corner right here with all of his stuff. I'M gon na have to figure out like um. Maybe i can get some more coffee, canisters, for him to store his beans in um, but yeah. I'M so excited about my tea box. It just turned out so beautiful and will hold all of my different teas. It's so big, it has so much storage. As you can see on the side, i barely even filled it up and i have so much tea um. So i'm excited that i have like room for even more. I just love that this is acrylic, so you can see through and like see all the different teas that i have and i also um like if a guest came over, they could easily see what all i had to choose their own. So this is just so nice. I have some of my favorites in here the jasmine green by nume and the green tea. Kombucha are probably my favorites right now, but i also just have the black tea peppermint tea, chamomile, a lot of the other. Just classics and then i have a little bit of pregnancy, tea left over and some mother's milk since i'm breastfeeding. I take that um, pretty frequently like maybe like once every couple of days, so yeah these cups, you guys, i'm obsessed with these, i'm so happy to have a full set of like matching mugs. Now i drank my coffee, or my decaf coffee. That omar made me have this morning out of one of these cups, and it is so good such good quality. I will link them down below they. Just make your coffee experience or tea experience. So luxurious, i will be linking below everything that i use to organize my pantry, including all the oxo containers and some similar baskets and my tea organizer, and everything like that. I have a few more things in my house that i would love to organize.
